Roy it is . . .

Barring formalities, Roy Hodgson will be unveiled as new man in charge at Anfield later today. The board has decided to go fer someone with huge amounts of experience (but not very many medals to show fer it).

To be honest, am quite sanguine about the whole thing as, in me humble opinion, it don't really make a difference. As long as them two yanks are there ripping the soul (and cash) out of the club, no manager will succeed.

Transfer funds - a paltry 15million quid.

Transfer tagets? ex-Kop hero Danny Murphy who is 35 & Brett Hangeland who is outside our price bracket at . . . (wait fer it) . . . 12million quid.

In such circumstances, me cannae help but see this as the beginning of our slippery slide into mid-table oblivion or worse . . .

Everything aside, I think it is a good appointment. He brings the best out of many average players and that suits our team which consists of many average ones. What can we do abt the Yanks??? Nothing! So let's pray Mr Hodgson works miracles for us!

Agree with you AD it wouldn't have made any diff who was appointed. Really thought since Kenny wanted it, it would've gone in his favour fer sure. Then again, no big diff.

RH is in fer the ride of his life. I wish him every success fer the club's and every supporter's sake. No disrespect but that said, he ain't exactly the one that's gonna turn water into wine fer us.

Hopefully the club gets sold soon and fer all the right reasons. Dread to think LFC sufferin the same fate and drastic fall of grace as Leeds Utd but if nothin's changin this soon might be imminent.

LLT: Every little thing counts. Don't buy any merchandise fer starters. If the footie doesn't improve, we'll soon have enough of an excuse to not tune in as well. Then we'll see if the yanks think they can still demand ludicrous sums fer the club.

kevo: Me thinks owners were just plain scared of appointing kenny. If rafa was popular, king kenny is worshipped among us supprters. So they know by appointing hodgson, fans will be on his back after a couple of poor performances.
